    Name: Third Coast Conversations
    Date: February 6, 2019
    Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    The state of Michigan is often referred to as the nation’s “third coast” because it boasts the most miles of shoreline in the contiguous United States, bordering four of the five Great Lakes. This abundance of water has allowed Michigan to be a lucrative place to do business and develop industry, including a booming tourism economy. At the same time, access to safe, clean water has also been a scarcity. By providing support for community conversations around topics connected to water, the goal of the project is to help more people across the state learn about issues related to water that affect their communities in the 21st century. Join Artworks as we engage our community in a conversation about placemaking (where we live) and stewardship of the Muskegon River. Our project will include a discussion around the historic uses, current condition, and future vision for placemaking, tourism, and stewardship of the Muskegon River. It is the hope that the Third Coast Conversations project will result in actionable ideas developed by citizens to help the community prioritize funding for public improvements, help the Muskegon River Watershed Assembly attract new supporters and volunteers, and develop a greater sense of our history and public responsibility toward Muskegon River stewardship.
